CSV Export just won't work in some folders

Tue, 24 May 2016 20:07:16 GMT

Using version 2.0.8 in Windows 7. 1 - I create a new project, using File --> New... 2 - Select the World Inventions example. 3 - I try to Export as CSV, but although it asks me the file location, nothing is saved. I noticed that the folder I choose seems to affect it. Maybe it can't be saved in folders with spaces in the name?

I just tried it, and it saved fine in a folder with a space in the name. Make sure you know exactly where it's being saved. i got fooled the first time I tried.

I just noticed something else. The problem was not because there was a space in the folder name, but a accent letter. Then Timeline saved the csv file in a new folder with a name that was equal to the original folder, but the accented letter was changed for a special character. (e.g I chose to save in the "Naïve" folder. but Timeline created and saved the file in the "Na%ve" folder.
